Description

Thrown together in about 10 minutes out of boredom.
Small solar pannel (4.5V, 150ma) charges up a load of random capacitors scavanged from an old computer motherboard through a diode. Pressing the button dumps the charge of the capacitors into a joule thief circuit which drives a 1w blue LED for a second or 2.
